2015 Acura TLX Earns 2014 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Rating as Acura Leads All Luxury Brands with Most IIHS Top Safety Plus-Rated Models

TLX equipped with AcuraWatch™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies for increased road sensing capabilities

11/04/2014 - TORRANCE, Calif.
The all-new 2015 Acura TLX, equipped with the latest generation of advanced Acura safety technologies, has received the highest possible rating of 2014 TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The TLX joins the RLX flagship sedan and MDX sport-utility vehicle in earning top marks from the IIHS, making Acura the leader among all luxury brands with the most 2014 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rated models.

"Our goal in developing TLX was to contribute to Acura's unmatched safety leadership in the luxury segment as part of an exceptional all-around luxury driving experience," said Mat Hargett, chief engineer of the 2015 TLX. "The TLX utilizes a highly advanced body construction plus the latest in safety and driver-assistive technologies to provide occupant protection that is unmatched in the segment."

The 2015 TLX is the first Acura model equipped with AcuraWatch™, a comprehensive suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies with leading-edge road-sensing and collision-mitigation capabilities, including pedestrian sensing. The fusion of camera and radar technology underpins the TLX's available Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) that can sense an impending frontal collision with another vehicle or a pedestrian and take action to avoid or mitigate the severity of the collision.

Additional standard and available driver-assistive features in the AcuraWatch suite include Blind Spot Information (BSI), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Expanded View Driver's Side Mirror, Lane Keep Assist (LKAS), Cross Traffic Monitor and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM).

The TLX also utilizes its next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) frontal body structure, and a new one-piece, hot-stamped steel door stiffener ring, along with advanced supplemental restraint systems – including front, side, side-curtain and driver's knee airbags – to provide a high level of occupant protection in a wide spectrum of collision scenarios.

Since the arrival of the TLX to dealerships in August, the TLX has quickly become one of Acura's best-selling models. Designed to deliver a unique and compelling blend of sports-sedan dynamic proportion, premium luxury refinement and super-handling performance, the TLX is appealing to a broad cross-section of luxury customers with three all-new powertrains and advanced chassis technologies that respond intelligently to the will of the driver. The TLX lineup features three distinct model offerings that deliver new levels of quietness and ride comfort for a luxurious driving experience.
